Thank you, Cadence and Mentor Graphics

Cadence and Mentor Graphics have both announced on the same day (4/12/2008) [1] [2]that Open Verification Methodology is available under the Apache 2 license.

While thousands of verification engineers are already using it, now if OVM gets into Fedora repositories, we will be providing industry-class verification tools for our FEL users. OVM is maintained by Cadence and Mentor Graphics.

Believe me or not, this is one step forward for the Fedora Electronic Users to meet interoperability. However, till now I haven’t seen an opensource systemverilog tool that supports it.

I have just submitted OVM for package review, while hoping to get OVM into Fedora repositories in the upcoming days.
